No-Nonsense Guide to Tourism

by Pamela Nowicka - £6.99  New Internationalist Publications Ltd (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781904456605 | ISBN 10: 190445660x

This guide demystifies the often invisible impacts of global tourism, one of the biggest industries in the world, from labour conditions to development by stealth; to the role of elites and the cultural impacts on both the visitor and the visited.
 
It also takes in themes like the gap year, the role of travel and vacations in western cultures, and examines the 'happy smiling faces' syndrome and asks whether this is just a reworking of old colonial relationships.
 
This title offers a plain-speaking, independent view that gives examples of healthy, sustainable tourism.
